The 36 Chambers lifestyle company, co-founded by RZA and Mustafa Shaikh, recently launched a live commentary-focused film platform that sees a number of creators providing insight to fans on classics of cinema
"The song was inspired by what the four heroes of the film have to tread through in order to get their bearings in an unjust system," RZA said. "A system splattered with inequalities and corruption. Although the film is set in 2005 with Hurricane Katrina as a backdrop, we find ourselves in 2020 in a similar political and social landscape."
